Thanks for reporting.

It was announced that "following the concert, the theatre will play an unreleased “mixtape” assembled by Lemieux."
Did that happen?

I couldn't make it but friend went and sent this pic about 10:30 PM. Band had already left the stage. (ha-ha.) I asked if they would write down 'mixtape' song list after Lovelight but haven't heard back yet.
I'm about 20 min. away nowadays, hope they do it again.

To Whom It May Concern...

What if, for example, Lambert and Gans -- and Rhino and Lemieux -- hosted and/or "better managed" a tour doing this stuff. What if "the band" was Terrapin Flyer with Tom Constanten and John Zias?

GD fans recommend John Zias

reveiw of Terrapin Flyer's Aug 8, 2012 show, by Yossarian08

See these guys if you get the chance. Nice! I saw these guys with TC, the 3 Cornmeal guys and John Zias last night and they KILLED it. Completely exceeded my expectations. ...these guys are really bringin' it now.

Review of Terrapin Flyer with Tom Constanten at Diamond Pub in Louisville on Aug 9, 2012

Tom Constanten played keyboards with the Grateful Dead during their peak of intensity, 1968-70. He was the special guest of Terrapin Flyer, on August 9 – the anniversary of Jerry Garcia's untimely death in 1995 – at Diamond Pub Concert Hall, the site of the old Jillian's. The band also included guitarist John Zias, who clearly was inspired by, but not a clone of Garcia. Apparently Constanten has had some health issues, but when the group finally began a little after 11, he seemed right at home. The 80-minute first set included the relatively rare "Mountains of the Moon," a delicate piece, which transformed into a roiling jam which, in turn, led to the treat of an exploratory "Dark Star," the Dead's magnum opus. The band played with feeling and a spirit which evoked the good old days. As it was a work night, I left before the second set, but was glad to catch this band on a good night.

"The Show" I'm thinking about, like the one noted at Capitol Theater, could go something like this...

Set 1
Lambert and/or Gans and/or Lemieux chat and play a few tracks

Set 2
Terrapin Flyer set

Set 3
Charlie Miller and/or Lambert and/or Gans and/or Lemieux interview a few old Tapers,
TC and Zias join the discussion,
a few tracks are played,
then suggestions for Set 4 are taken from the audience

Set 4 is played

Re: Marijuana Tourism in Colorado and "this show"...
Pot Tourism In Colorado OK'd By Marijuana Task Force

r-POT-TOURISM-COLORADO-OK-large570.jpg?6

DENVER -- Marijuana tourism is on the way to Colorado, under a recommendation made February 19, 2013 by a state task force to regulate the drug made legal by voters last year.

But Colorado should erect signs in airports and borders telling visitors they can't take pot home, the task force recommended.

Colorado's marijuana task force was assembled to suggest regulations for pot after voters chose to flout federal drug law and allow its use without a doctor's recommendation. Made up of lawmakers, law enforcement authorities and marijuana activists, the task force agreed on Februrary 19, 2013 that the constitutional amendment on marijuana simply says that adults over 21 can use the drug, not just Colorado residents. If lawmakers agree with the recommendation, tourists would be free to buy and smoke marijuana.

"Imposing a residency requirement would almost certainly create a black market for recreational marijuana in the state," said Rep. Dan Pabon, a Denver Democrat who sits on the task force.

Tourists could see purchasing caps though, possibly as low as an eighth of an ounce per transaction.

Afraid that marijuana tourism could open the door for traffickers to load up and take it across state borders for illegal sale, task force members agreed that non-residents should be able to buy only limited amounts, though a specific amount wasn't set.

"Marijuana purchased in Colorado must stay in Colorado," Pabon warned.

(I could help promote this)

LIA - Update from friend who attended:
The show was emceed by Gary Lambert, co-host (with David Gans) of Sirius radio show, "Tales from the Golden Road". He gave a brief but informative background of the event citing the Dead's history at the venue and the significance of the Feb. '71 run of shows in particular. (He hinted that 2/24 was chosen because owner, Peter Shapiro, is a big Pigpen fan.)
The stage was set as you see in photo posted yesterday and Lambert introduced the band. Sound was incredible but there was no real light show beyond the use of stage spots. Intermission between sets.
After Lovelight the promised mixtape was played after an announcement to 'see if you can identify these songs and dates' or something like that. Well, at that point seems friend was unable to even write down song titles let alone guess dates, very sorry. Maybe if you give Gary Lambert a call...
Anyway, the positive reaction of all who were there leads everyone to believe that if/when a similar event is held it will be sold out well in advance.

Thanks. It's funny, on the dead.net page nobody said anything about the mixtape either. They might have played stuff nobody's ever heard, and who would know?

They did play a mixtape, but I had to leave shortly after it started unfortunately. Began with a Fall 72 Playin of some sorts.

Ya know, I would LOVE doing this, frankly. AT a really comfy small place, sitting back, knowing you'd hear some great stuff really amplified so you feel it, with a nice time appropriate slide show? I'd easily pay a rat dog ticket price for that experience!

IE, $10-20 or so...

Would love to do it for CREAM and the DEAD.

Myself as well.
It would be a great idea to have nationwide listening parties for each new commercial release. The idea of listening to a show in a club setting through a big sound system with a group of like-minded individuals (meaning the wife wouldn't have to go)while having someone else bring me food and drink is very attractive. Not sure about the dancing part though, don't think my knees would be to excited.

The dancing part was the highlight for me alongside just hearing the music on such a soundsystem.

The great part about The Cap was that they had lots of seating as well. I don't believe they do food, but they do have drinks.

Okay, you have my Taper's Handbook sketch; you have a Taper's Compendium Panel that lays out some structured reality for this shit.

Are you now saying "some of us could tour in real life" doing this stuff, AND, if we played tapes and slideshows, etc, you guys would pay us if you could drink beer and eat food with us?

Bullshit!

An evening spent drinking beer, eating food AND listening to some fine tunes would be more than worthy of a few dollars.

I (bull)shit you not.

Much better idea than the recent showing of the Dead Movie in commercial theaters.

No surprise that our first act signed was Acoustic Alchemy. I've got a good feeling about the opening act: Napalm Death (I'm not kidding on that one, look it up). Those two acts were born to share a stage.

"Business is a little off at the moment."

Yep. I'm the Village-idiot in-Chief, and the Trolls think I'm bi-polar. And in this case, I cannot promote myself and others any further. I feel like that would be rubbing "IT" in your faces. And, I only speak for myself.

What to do now? Nothing, as usual, but it's free. Here's more of my work on a show for free...

...matrixing this Eyes of The World, and I suggest listening to it. This one is beautiful and jazzy. Blows me away, it's my "Taper's Choice". TURN IT UP!

Dec 18, 1973 matrix of Adam G's tapes
GD73-12-18.gif
The AUD tape is so good, it sounds like a SBD. The taper had Garcia's and the band's permission to record, and was able to record very close to the stage. It doesn't appear to circulate very much, although some known dat copies were made in the mid-1990s. This is from a transfer the taper did in 1998, burned to CD.

The AUD sounds better to me than the SBD. I can personally tell you, as the matrixing engineer, the SBD mix adds wonderfully to this AUD: more high-end fidelity noticeable on drums and cymbals; more/better vocals at the top end of their dynamic range; and, there's a "much better mix with Keith" UP in the right channel on the SBD (most noticeable in the matrix). Also note, the matrix tracking is the complete show. This one is for the Smithsonian Institute.

Bingo... exactly... I agree with you. Village-idiot, average Joe, cowboy, trail-grub... "average person"... who was very fortunate to have lucked out in life and had a great happy-go-lucky lifestyle -- thanks to GD, Bear, Alembic and Ampex. I've said this many times.

"itmusthavebeen" -- not really -- For me, IT WAS!!

There are many content creators here at The Archive that share the same passion as me. Yes indeed, I am promoting "my values". Anyone is welcome to try removing "my name" and "my person" from my content, and focus instead on my points. You will see My Values are speaking.

Playing the martyr? I'd rather not, but -- yes, it's true. This is because I've said many, many times: "I'm taking my values to the grave with me. I am proud of them... loyalty..."

Me "playing the journalist" is more like it, and also becoming a punk-librarian. The digital content I created, uploaded, and posted to The Archive speak for themselves. For example...
